Grace T. is married and has two children. Her husband works in construction. Grace has been selling cooked rice and sweet potatoes at Abura for three years.

More sweet potatoes are demanded by her customers and so she is asking to use the loan to purchase more to expand her business. She plans to reinvest the additional income back into her business.
